|Adam B||Brad Keselowski|
Adam B of ATS.io did not exactly make a pick, but he sounds high on Keselowski, who won the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway back in April.

He has also cracked the top five in two of his last four starts there, including a win in the 2020 Coca-Cola 600.

Here’s what TopBet’s Ryan Simpson said about Kyle Busch in our preview of the 2021 Coca-Cola 600 race:
“After a disappointing showing in the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway, Busch had a much more impressive performance, as he finished 109th in the EchoPark Texas Grand Prix. He now has three top 10s in his last three starts, a stretch that includes his win in the Buschy McBusch Race 400 at Kansas Speedway on May 2. Busch only has one in 32 starts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but he’s got a 14.69 career average finish there. He also cracked the top 4 in three of his last four appearances on that track.”
